The term "Gandy Dancer" was given to the men who worked on the section crews that would move the heavy sections of rails. They would move in unison, sometimes to a song or a beat. The tools used were manufactured by the Gandy Tool Company, hence "Gandy Dancer".
The tools represented in bronze are the spike maul, rail gauge, wrench, clawbar, and rail tongs.
